Ellen E. Barnett

Ellen E. Barnett died at her home in Van Buren county, Ark., March 25, 1895, aged 12 years, 2 months and 26 days.
Ellen was born in Etowah county, Ala., Dec. 29, 1882. She moved several times and was finally brought to Van Buren county Ark., in December 1890.  Ellen's absence is a void in the family and community that can never be filled. She was a kind, dutiful, and obedient girl, who loved her parents and was friendly to all. Her last word was "Ma".  She leaves a father and mother, four brothers, one sister and a host of friends behind her, but she renounced everything of a worldly nature before her illness seized her. Funeral services were held by Eld. W.F. Sims.
Ellen, rest till God shall call
Thy kindred to thy side;
Until, like thee, their lot shall fall
With Jesus to abide.
S.B. Barnett, Her Brother
